In this GSB-only online class through WorkshopSF, fine artist Becca Schillinger will teach us how to paint beautiful galaxies, night skies, planets, and deep space using some of her favorite watercolor techniques! We will begin with a discussion of the best tools and materials for watercolor painting, followed by a short intro to basic principles around color theory as well as how certain colors are used to evoke certain responses from the observer. Next, we'll dive in and start learning to use color blending, gradients, wet on wet washes, and even pencil drawing techniques to render night skies, nebulas, and other celestial bodies. We'll have plenty of time to ask questions as we experiment with each of these techniques before applying them to our final watercolor project. This is a great opportunity for total beginners and folks with some watercolor experience to space out, get creative, and learn new techniques to produce these beautiful images!

Registration includes a watercolor kit with all the supplies you'll need for the class, and access to a recording of the class so you can re-watch and master the techniques. Please make sure to submit your mailing address where you will receive supplies the week of the event.

This event is co-sponsored by the Bay Area Recent Alumni Ambassadors
